I now understand why Ghana football is in a mess - Kofi Amoah
President of the Normalization Committee, Dr Kofi Amoah has revealed that he has now come to terms with why Ghana football went into the drains.
The Normalization Committee were instituted by FIFA in conjunction with the Government of Ghana after the ban of GFA capo Kwesi Nyantakyi to run the affairs of the FA, revive the statues and organise elections. The four-member Committee has part of its mandate decided to organise a Special Competition to keep clubs active while the reformation of Ghana football goes on.
The said competition was postponed on three separate occasions before the eventual cancellation by the Normalization Committee due to disagreements with the Ghana Premier League clubs.
But according to Kofi Amoah, his few engagements with the clubs has enlightened him why Ghana football went into the drains.
“I see that some of the reasons why Ghana football went into the gutter are the same reasons why the tournament never started,” he said in an interview on Joy FM.
''Therefore it has become clear to me that maybe the better wise way to go is to take your time to reform, make all the changes, bring the strength into it, get the approval and then you can play the football by the guidelines of the new statutes and then things will be better.”
“I don't regret it because we were doing it with the purity of our hearts and desire to help our football community. But we all learn from happenstances and this happenstance has shown us that the better way to have gone was to finish the reform before playing football.”
The Normalization Committee tenure of office is expected to end on March 31 where their work will be reviewed by FIFA.
